    Good, that's a happy place then. I'm sorry your health is gone down, but you can still take lessons to get your horse fix. I know it's not the same.. thinking of you. I still find it hard to accept, but my body reminds me frequently.

    I filled a niche on Pinterest when I ran across it too with horses, it gives me a lot of stress free fun. There's always something to be thankful for. (((Hugs))) to you trooper.

    She called me and wants to move the date up to July 9th. She will be keeping the horses at her neighbor's until her place is ready. I'm sure that theyare a great fit for Sarge and Ms T so I said yes. 20180615_160655-1.jpg

    I'm sorry to hear about your declining health. Is there some way you can still stay involved in the horse community so you don't feel completely cut off? Pencilling at dressage days, helping out at the local pony club, something horse related but not too physically demanding?

    If you think that will only be rubbing salt in the wound, perhaps it's time to explore a new activity or hobby that is within your physical capabilities. Painting, drawing, writing, wood working... there are lots of different hobbies out there that will challenge you. Who knows, you may even discover a new passion.

    I do still draw. It takes me forever to finish. Here is an example of my work.

    You are talented. I'd actually hang that and I'm serious. I know it's not Picasso, but who wants a sketch from them of horses? Well, I'd love to find one to sell, but don't really appreciate their work.

    Beautiful

    This is beautiful! Perhaps this is an opportunity for you to focus a little more on your artwork and getting more projects finished?
